The Hot Dipped Galvanizing Association (http://www.galvanizeit.org/   ) has 
 some references and resources for painting hot dipped galvanizing systems 
(duplex systems).

Elements

Any recommendations?

I am working on a small lattice/trellis structure consisting of HSS 
sections. It will be located near the coast. The architect wants to 
galvanize the structure and then paint it. I'm not an expert in galvanizing 
 (or anything for that matter), but I believe it is difficult if not 
impossible to coat something that can't be dipped into a tank and then 
paint won't adhere to the galvanizing once it's coated. I'm recommending 
painting the structure, but I come up short when offering a specific 
coating. Is there an epoxy coating that would be suitable?

Thank you,
